I dearly miss the Celis brewery in Austin, Texas. I loved their white beer. This beer is the 'classic' of the 'white beer' style. Crisp, opaque, refreshing citrus notes, spicy. This style isn't for everyone, but on a warm day, it's a great brew to have (252 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz brown. Freshness date clearly marked.

Appearance: Has the same look as freshly squeezed lemonade (pale and cloudy w/o pulp), but with a thin, sticky white head.

Smell: Tart, horse and spice aromas are all present and balanced in the nose.

Taste: An up-front sour/lemon zest flavour followed by slight notes of light grain, with mild hints of orange and coriander, dominate. Peppery and herbal flavours lay beneath and travel the palate, along with a tartness, to the end.

Notes: We can't remember ever tasting a better American made White beer other than Allagash (ME). (600 characters)

One of the best white beers i've tried, very sliky smooth with am appetizing, zingy, clovey, citrusy flavour, in the overall scheme of beer, theres not much of a muchness when it comes to the body and flavour, but its palate covering stuff, and has pretty easy drinkability, which makes it quite versitile in terms of session drinking and having it as a complimet to food. (372 characters)

Gone, gone, gone. Miller has brought infinite shame upon itself for shuttering the Celis Brewery. Last summer, there were rumors floating around that the Celis family was going to buy it back, but no further word on that. This beer was the absolute model for the Belgian wit style (Pierre Celis, after all, resuscitated the Hoegaarden Brewery before he sold it to Interbrew) and at under $6 a six-pack, it's the greatest bargain in all of beerdom. RIP. (457 characters)
